I started to go through my photos from our trip out west and got a little overwhelmed, so here are just a few from Seattle. Our friends that we stayed with live in Ballard, just down the street from the Locks so we took a walk down there on the first day. I'm told that we arrived just as the rains began, so the weather varied between mist, clouds, and intermittent sunlight. I can't say I was bothered by any of it; the landscape is so lushly green and covered with huge trees, ferns, moss and lichen that would probably not thrive were it not for that temperate climate.
This is pretty much the extent of my urban photography on the trip, as most of my photos are pretty much of the aforementioned incredible landscape, the North Cascades in particular. One great thing about visiting in the fall is the abundance of fungi, which I must admit is the reason I became overwhelmed when starting to go through photos. So many different types! I would love to share them all with you. It will take a while, but I'm going to break them up into a series of posts over the next several weeks -- small pleasures.
I hope everyone has a Happy Halloween and a lovely weekend. More knitted fungi is coming next week!
